Reading the Bible Again for the First Time – Adult Spiritual Formation

September 18 @ 9:45 am - 10:30 am EDT

As children, many of us received a Bible and were told everything in it was true. Then we grew up. What was oh-so-simple then is…well, it’s not simple. Many mistakenly believe there are no choices for reading the Bible other than fundamentalism or simply rejecting it as something that can bring meaning to our lives.

Using the title of the late Marcus Borg’s seminal book on this subject, we will see how it is possible to reconcile the Bible with both a critical way of thinking and with our deepest spiritual needs as experienced through the sacred text.

During these sessions, we will examine the biblical texts that are often used to judge, sometimes condemn, and often marginalize the LGBTQ+ community, women, and other faith traditions. You are invited to join this study series to “firm up” your own faithful understanding of scripture. After all, it’s in the Bible!
